I really want to buy a house within the next few years. To accomplish that goal, I need to save as much money as I can, and pay off debt as soon as possible. One way I’m doing that, is doing laundry by myself whenever possible.
There is a laundromat in town, but it is dirty, and a single load costs at least $4.25 to wash and dry. That can add up quickly. Washing my shirts by hand is pretty easy to do. I bought a plastic tub with a drain opening so I don’t have to use the kitchen sink. I’ll still wash large items like towels, sheets, and blankets at the laundromat when necessary.
To dry them, I’m using a drying rack I bought on Amazon, and taking advantage of the long Missouri summers.
This is just one thing I’m doing to save money. It’s going pretty well so far.
